Forget this and watch the Australian version!
19 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

I gave it a try again after the completion of season 8 of Masterchef Australia. I am SO embarrassed for this show. Please stop with all the grandstanding. It isn't funny. It isn't exciting and it just makes you look like a jerk. It is embarrassing, as someone who lives overseas, to think that this represents Americans. Nothing to be admired.

After watching two episodes of season 7, my original review stands and I will now stop watching....again.

I have watched both seasons of Masterchef Australia as well as Celebrity Masterchef Australia and I love the whole thing. I can't wait until Children's Masterchef Australia starts. This version is just too mean. I love the pace and the length of the Australian version. The US version is all about ratings and drama for the sake of drama rather than the amazing drama of coming to care about a contestant and then watching his or her dreams shattered. The contestants and the judges handle themselves and the competition with respect on the Australian version while there has already been nastiness on both sides of the US version. I'll keep watching because I am stuck here in South Korea without many choices and it is better than watching rice grow...but barely!
